You may see the above error during Analysis & Elaboration, if you are using the SDI RX design files from the SDI II IP core generated example design in Quartus® Prime software version 17.0. This is because the rcfg_sdi_cdr module is unable to locate the transceiver reconfiguration parameter packages by default.
Add the following Quartus II Settings File (.qsf) assignment to your QSF file:
set_global_assignment -name SYSTEMVERILOG_FILE <file directory>/rcfg_sdi_cdr.sv -library sdi_rx_sys_altera_xcvr_native_a10_170
You may refer to the IP generated example design QSF file for further details. This information will be updated into the future release of the design example user guide.
